Spring Forward With Simple Home Comfort Steps

Spring in Lebanon – Wilson County, Tennessee is a good time for a fresh start. In the spirit of the season, here are some tips from the Bentley’s Air Conditioning team to revitalize your home and quality of life.

Install Screens
Consider purchasing window screens and letting your home air out on comfortable days. This will give your cooling system a break and freshen the environment after being closed up all winter. Remember, indoor pollution is often worse than outdoor because modern houses are so tightly sealed.

Upgrade Your Thermostat
Still using that old thermostat? Think about purchasing a new programmable model.  It will let you better control your energy use and maximize your comfort according to the weather and your schedule. A programmable thermostat is a valuable resource for people who are away from home for set periods of time.

Replace Air Filters
Spring is the perfect time to get in the habit of changing your A/C filter on a monthly basis. A filter that’s become clogged with hair, pet dander, mold, pollen, dust, or any number of pollutants and particles puts a strain on your cooling system and spoils the air your family breathes. Change it regularly and enjoy a fresh flow of clean air and savings or upgrade to our whole house filtration system and change the filter only once per year.

Stir Up An Indoor Breeze
You can keep your home more comfortable and reduce A/C costs this spring and summer by installing energy-efficient ceiling fans to circulate the air. The average cost to run a fan is only about $7 a month and it can make a big difference in creating a breeze effect that feels cool on the skin.

Seal Cracks In Windows And Doors
Sealing small cracks and crevices (less than ¼ inch wide) between a window or door frame and the molding can save 10% or more on your cooling bills and reduce your carbon emissions by hundreds of pounds.
